Please pray for my DAD
My Dad came to spend time with me before the holidays. His being here with me when I wasn't feeling so well helped me to get through so many things. On Monday evening he had slurred speech, and I brought him to the ER they said nothing showed on his CAT SCAN of his head except for a past stroke. They did some blood work and his blood sugar level came back at 60. They said he was hypoglycemic gave him some orange juice with sugar and his speech improved. They shortly after discharged him saying to follow up with his regular MD. All night I kept an eye on him just in case if something else happened. On Tues. morning at 6:30 he needed to use the bathroom he then realized his right arm, and right leg where not functioning. (My dad is an amputee, and only has his right leg.) I called 911 and the ambulance brought him back to the hospital. The Nuero and Cardio Dr's agree he had a stroke to the left of his head, and that is why his right side was affected. He is now in the ICU Stroke Unit at our local hospital.
I am asking that you please pray for his recovery. It would be greatly appreciated...
Thank You So Much!!!!

~I was diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis at the age of 23, 4 months after getting married. I also have severe Endometriosis, Adhesion Disease and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction. All of which were diagnosed AFTER being diagnosed with IC. Before IC my only health issues were a history of migraines since I was a child and a battle with cervical dysplasia. I had a LEEP in 2007 and have been clear of the cancerous cells since.~
~Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions, concerns or comments. Or if you just need a friend, someone to listen. I am almost always lurking around online somewhere. LOL~

Prayers for my Dad
I would like to Thank You for all your , and well wishes.
You don't realize how much this means to me. His condition seems to be getting progressively worst. I am sure when I tell him about all the prayers he will be so grateful.

Sending lots of prayers your way. It must have been very scary to see your dad under such circumstances.
